Dont make it look like it was all reds fault for saying the stuff he did. The vikes got exposed badly by teams with porous rushing defense. Not enough speed and athleticism in the lb core and williams was out of position on the d-line. Bascially everything what purplepat said.

Teams outsmarted us and we took too long to adjust and the rest is self explanatory.
I agree our defense needed help, our linebackers play was subpar (claiborne slowed by an injury really hurt) , Hovan and Mixon both had terrible years, and Danard Walker was out of his league.

But Red demoralizded the team, and if your heads not in it, your heart isn't in it either. This team was losing to teams that were inferior!
